Google Maps launches a 'wheelchair accessible' option for 6 cities

Big cities like London usually aren't known for being easily accessible to people using wheelchairs, but a new feature from Google Maps is a step toward making it easier.


Google Maps on Thursday launched a "wheelchair-accessible" option for six major cities.

"In city centers, buses and trains are often the best way to get around, which presents a challenge for people who use wheelchairs or with other mobility needs," said Google in a blog announcement. "Information about which stations and routes are wheelchair friendly isn’t always readily available or easy to find."


To use the feature, punch in a route as you usually would, then tap on "options." It can be found under the "routes" option.
